This was the first baseball game I ever went to, but I was already a huge fan of the Mets. I remember Mitchell and Strawberry hit home runs and after that they were my favorite Mets, along with Gary Carter. This was a magical time to be 9 years old and a huge Mets fan.

I attended this game with a group of students from school. We took a bus from New Jersey, encountering a rainstorm on Route 80 along the way. The rain, thankfully, stopped by the time we arrived at Shea.

We all sat in the loge level down the left field line. We saw a good game. In typical '86 fashion, the Mets won. Home runs by Mitchell and Strawberry helped Bob Ojeda get a well-earned win.

The most memorable moment, however, occurred during on of Lenny Dykstra's at-bats. There was a girl in the field level seats wearing a wedding gown. She was holding a sign above her head that had "MARRY ME LENNY" written on it. She seemed to get more cheers that night than did the players!

The Mets suck! They need to trade Smith and get somebody like Jones.
This comment is off-topic and will be removed. It has nothing to do with any specific game. But here's an acceptable alternative:

Example Two
The Mets suck! Smith made three errors in this game, and hit into a double play, and the Mets blew a 5-0 lead. They need to get rid of Smith and get somebody like Jones.
See the difference? Here you're getting the same point across, but it's in the proper context. We wouldn't consider this message to be off-topic, and we would let it remain.

We do appreciate anybody who takes the time to share their thoughts on our site, and we hate to remove anybody's postings. But if we didn't take steps to ensure that only on-topic messages were retained, The Ultimate Mets Database would become a confusing jumble of unrelated comments, and would thus be less enjoyable to visitors like you.

Thank you!
